Pikes Peak Library District presents the Jean Ciavonne Poetry Contest for Children. This year’s theme is Follow Your Nose: On the Scent of Poetry.
Take some time to re-experience a smell that you remember. Really feel it and think about ways to describe it.
Spend some imaginative time daydreaming about what that smell might look like if one could see it, or what it might feel like if one could touch it.
Carefully consider your word choices. Don’t stop at the first word that rhymes, but continue to seek out just the right word. Judges will be on the lookout for creative word choice this year – the “juicier” the better!
This contest is open to all fourth and fifth graders in the Pikes Peak region. For contest rules and submission details, click here.
